Exmouth Town are delighted to announce three new signings for the upcoming 23/24 season, as Andrew Sowden, Harvey Field and Orlando Anker sign for the club.

All three players have been involved throughout pre-season, and have all individually impressed the coaches and Town fans with their performances. 

You may remember Sowden, as he played for Town against Westbury last season, and he has now joined permanently following his departure from Exeter City, playing in all of Town’s pre-season games.

Field, formerly of Torquay United, played 80 minutes against Exeter City, holding his own at full-back throughout the game. 

Anker, who has played for the likes of Tiverton and Bideford, joins with a primary focus on helping out with the upcoming games, but the exciting winger has shown what he is capable of in Exmouth’s final two friendlies. 

Exmouth Town manager Kevin Hill gave us his view on his new additions.

“They’ve done well, Orlando (Anker) has signed on to help us on Saturday and we will go from there with him, but what I’ve seen of him I quite like him, he’s an impact player at the moment with us and he’s come off the bench in the last two games and he’s created something.

It gives us another option, alongside Harvey Dorathy whose signed on for this season as he did last year.

Last year he (Sowden) helped us out at Westbury away, and that was his first taste of men’s football, getting released from Exeter is a bit of a sore spot for him, but he wanted to give it a go, and he’s willing to fight for his place, and to be fair he’s been brilliant.

Robbie (Powell) got hurt playing cricket so he might be another couple of weeks, and (Chris) Wrighty’s done his ribs, and I can’t fault his attitude and he has done well.

He did really well, they move it, they pass it but the young lad (Field) has done really well, and I liked what I saw, he’s only 18 and he impressed today.”

You will potentially get to see all three players make their Town debuts this Saturday, as we travel to Bickland Park to take on Falmouth Town.
